Starting from Meredith Circuit, Kambah, this walk takes you to the summit of Urambi Hill and back, exploring the woodland of the nature reserve. You’ll be enjoying the 360 degree viewing angle from the summit of the hill in a matter of minutes, as the track is virtually a straight line. Savor the spectacular view of the Brindabella Range as the kangaroos sunbathe around you. You can also birdwatch throughout the walk, and try to spot a brown falcon or a Baillon’s crake. You may even spot a Little Eagle if you get lucky. Keep in mind that you need to keep your dog on leash at all times. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
